'Yellowstone' Season 3 Episode 6: Will Jamie betray the Dutton family after all the hate and drama?
He has had enough of John's demands and the constant guillotine over his neck that he isn't meeting his father's expectations
Spoilers for 'Yellowstone' Season 3 Episode 6: 'All For Nothing'
Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) is a peculiar character. He might be smart, intelligent, powerful, and a cunning litigator, but he is also the most hated Dutton family member.
Every Dutton family member seems to have a different reason to do so. The show has only just revealed why his sister Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) hates his guts. As a teenager, she was pregnant with Rip's (Cole Hauser) child. When she approached Jamie for help, the intended abortion ended in a hysterectomy all without her knowledge.
This leads to a lifetime's worth of anger and hatred. In the latest episode, not only does Beth finally confront Jamie about this, about the "help" he gave her all those years ago, and the pain and agony his "help" caused her, but she also tells her father John Dutton (Kevin Costner) about it.
Now John wants to beat Jamie black and blue, not only for what he did to his sister but also because his one decision harmed their family's legacy and future. John walks in angry telling him how the Yellowstone ranch only has Tate (Brecken Merrill) as the rightful heir, how decades later when they're old, only Tate will be fighting to preserve their land.
Jamie defends himself and tells him that all he has done in the past and continues to do is for the family, to protect it and their land. But John doesn't care about any of excuses and/ or explanations, as they are not enough to fill the void that his actions have left.
When John walks out, Jamie punches a glass door and hurts himself. He gets worked up and needs to be calmed down by Kayce (Luke Grimes) who doesn't fully know what is happening right now. As John walks out, Jamie yells behind him that he only works for the Dutton family but no to avail.
This has got us thinking that Jamie will finally betray his family. By now, he has had enough of John's demands and the constant guillotine over his neck that he isn't meeting his father's expectations. Now, as this old event is brought up, it will also dig up feelings of animosity on Jamie's end.
It is not just this. Earlier in the episode, Willa Hays (Karen Pittman), the CEO of Market Equities, makes the new Attorney General an offer that he cannot refuse — $500 million for the part of the Yellowstone ranch for their airport plans. While Jamie doesn't have to give them, Hays notices a "desire" in his eyes that she is confident will get him to their side.
Will it, though? Perhaps. Jamie might just have had enough of the Dutton family drama and would want to quit it all. And Hays' money might be his way out.
'Yellowstone' airs on Sundays at 9 pm ET/ PT on Paramount Network.
